Our 10-week Introduction to English Law and Legal Method short course provides a comprehensive introduction to the UK legal system and how this sits within European legislation.
Taught at City’s central London campus, this English Law evening class provides a detailed examination of how legal rules are made and applied; and an overview of the twin pillars of state - the courts and the constitution.
You will be encouraged to participate in class discussion on individual topics, including:
- Parliamentary legislation
- The doctrine of precedent
- Equitable principles
- Legal terminology
- Law reporting.
Brexit and the impact of Human Rights Law are also discussed.
